Wow, sounds like a lot of work went into that Lemmings conversion! Great work!

Thanks :)

Would have loved to try Lemmings on it before I sold my 6128 Plus..

Yeah, the problem with these games type heroquest of lemmings that use 16k of ram for music (lemmings use only c4 blok =16k from the other bank). Is he used that as ram. They write infomation to these ram constantly, so to convert it to 64k is necesary located all access ram in the code, redirige it to a free ram zone in the gx4000. And put the rest of the code in the cartrige.

In lemmnings maybe should be possible because i stole a big call and i made it free en ram. But need more people examining the code to make the job easy only one can take.. uff XD.

Thats because chase h.q is realitivy easy. They not write nothing in the second bank, they only read data to use in speech.

Is the diference in rom vs ram, rom only can be read(cartridge), and ram can be read/write (Ram).




Anyway i go to Fix the Crash when pass level 60 using button 2  so he return to 1 and is not more necesariy switch on/off the console or the plus  to go to lower level.

Edit: fixed crash selecting level +60 now return to 1 in 61.

Yeah, the problem with lemmings clock it sometimes it go more faster or slow.Depending of number of lemmings in screen.Thats the cause xhypoe in her day found the game so dificult or impossible. Spectrum have best frame rate so is less affected.

I left here a temporary solution until arnoldemu found a definitive  solution for the clock bug. Choose you a delay in timer clock :) .

Edit: amazing, lemmings tape(no the disc version) have another bug. He not show you the final message of the game when you finish the game  only trash.

solved: :picard2: :picard2: :picard2: :picard2: :picard2: The programmer not have molested to aligned the text to wtf. (solved to).

I've been working on making " Wizball " a little more GX4000 friendly.

It can be a little tricky waggling the Joypad left and right to select the feature represented on the glowing Icon at top of screen.

Urusergi has helped deal with the compression, so my changes could be made to the cngsoft version ( Wizball v2 ).

Changes to the game.....

You can now press Joypad 1 Button 2 to select the feature represented on the glowing Icon at top of screen.

Pause the game with the Console Pause Button, unpause with Joypad 1 Button 1, Whilst paused press the Console Pause Button again to quit game and return back to title screen.

I've just updated the last game that was 1 player only ( by myself ) , this one is " Metro Cross ".

Changes to the game.....

You can now start a 1 or 2 player game, use Joypad 2 Button 1 for 1 Player, Joypad 2 Button 2 for 2 Player.

I used Joypad 2 buttons instead of Joypad 1, the reason being, if I mapped Joypad 1 Buttons the game would auto restart.

You can Pause and unpause the game with Joypad 1 Button 2.

Quit game with the console pause button.

GHOSTBUSTERS

I've managed to find the disc version of the game with no protection, so I've converted the tape and disc version.  ;D

I've included the credit screen and loading screen from the tape version on the converted disc cpr.  8)

I've updated " Soccer 86 " that was converted by @remax.

The game was " Only one player, as player 2 needs keyboard ".

I've remapped the keys to Joypad 2, so you can now play with two players.

Just select the Joypad you want to play with, both controllers work on the menu.

Ignore the arrows with S, K, L, X, I'm not sure where they are to remove them.

Pause the game with Joypad 1 Button 2, unpause with Joypad/s Button 1, whilst paused, press console button to quit.
